Heisman Favorite Emerges Following Wild Week 10

C.J. Stroud, Ohio State Buckeyes Football

Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud played the worst statistical game of his career on Saturday.

Stroud completed just 10 of 26 passes for 76 yards and no touchdowns amid blustery conditions against Northwestern, marking the first time in his career he's thrown more incompletions than completions during a game and failed to score a touchdown.

And yet, following the performance, Stroud has become the betting favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

That shows how wild a weekend it was in college football.

According to BetJack, Stroud has surpassed Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker to resume his spot at the top of the Heisman odds board.

"C.J. Stroud once again has the top odds to win the Heisman at betJACK and most sportsbooks nationwide, surpassing Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker after a wild weekend in college football," Eleven Warriors tweeted.

With three games remaining in the regular season, Stroud's odds to win the most coveted individual award in college football are 4-5. He's slightly ahead of Hooker, 5-2, who also failed to throw a touchdown during a 27-13 loss to Georgia.

Rounding out the top five are Michigan running back Blake Corum, USC quarterback Caleb Williams and Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett. Bennett was the biggest mover of the weekend after he threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for a score in the Bulldogs' statement win over Tennessee.

If Saturday was any indication, there should be plenty more mayhem to come across the final three weeks of the regular season, both on the field and in the Heisman race.
